OWISM SOM Book Club Special Event

The OWISM will host a special book club event on Tuesday, November 8, 2016 from 4-5pm in the Faculty Commons Room (MRB200).  Our very own Catherine DeAngelis, Professor Emerita, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Public Health, Editor in Chief Emerita, JAMA will do a brief book reading and signing of her book Pursuing Equity in Medicine: One Woman’s Journey, which is available at the Matthews bookstore and on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/Pursuing-Equity-Medicine-Womans-Journey/dp/153334194X

Catherine DeAngelis, MD, MPH, has over forty years of experience in the medical field, and her career has been full of adventure, compassion, and courage.

DeAngelis was born to a family of Italian immigrants in rural northeastern Pennsylvania. Every year she would ask Santa Claus for a doctor’s kit. Every year she would receive a nurse’s kit. It was only when her father turned one such gift into a doctor’s kit that DeAngelis was truly happy. With her father’s faith in her, DeAngelis had the confidence to apply to medical school.

The road ahead would not be easy—it would be fraught with uncertainty, prejudice, and even Chechen hostage takers! Along the way, DeAngelis gained more and more confidence in her ability as a doctor but remained frustrated by the lack of opportunities available to women in her field. In Pursuing Equity in Medicine: One Woman’s Journey, she uses examples from her own life to passionately argue for equal treatment for all men and women.

This memoir is a must-read for any woman in the medical profession determined to break the glass ceiling—and any man who wants to understand what his female colleagues must endure.

Invite a friend or two, RSVP to Catherine DeAngelis Book Signing Event!

We look forward to seeing you there!
